Environmental crime spoils the local environment for the communities that live in them.
How we feel about the area in which we live can have a significant effect on perceptions of safety, and affect our health. An area plastered with graffiti and suffering from vandalism and disrepair, can often get caught in a downward spiral which leads to a loss of ownership by the community.
We are committed to tackling environmental crime, and take a zero tolerance approach to tackle offenders.
Our Community Safety Team have a programme of preventative initiatives to educate people (in particular children) to change their behaviour for the long term.
